"It's a really good academic school. From talking to my recruiting coach he informed me that they only have a few thousand kids at the school. It's not really a big school so I'd be able to have plenty of 1-on-1 time with the teachers. That's a big thing. I don't want to be in huge classes or an overwhelming class with too many students. I want to be able to get the attention I need."
It's not like Benjamin says that about everyone either. He's narrowed his options down to Wake Forest, West Virginia, Texas A&M, FIU, Kentucky, Memphis, SMU and Minnesota. That's certainly a unique assortment of schools from different parts of the country, but that's a sign that Benjamin has given a lot of thought to each of the schools recruiting him and has picked out different things he likes about each.
He already knows of three of his five official visits.
"I know I'm going to take official visits to West Virginia, Wake Forest and Kentucky," he said.
Benjamin has been taking it easy this summer. His own team has had their camp and a 7-on-7 passing league but he hasn't taken any college visits or attended college camps.
He's planning to visit some schools unofficially in August or early September before taking his five official visits.
